Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu

Proverbially, in politics there is no permanent friend, no permanent enemy and only interest prevails in politics.

Lagos State, the mega city that harbor all persons from the nooks and crannies of various states in Nigeria under one umbrella known and addressed as Lagos City, eko o ni baje, o baje ti and itesiwaju eko lojowaloju.

The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, has frankly pleaded with Nigerians not to fight one another because of politicians and further urged youths not to engage in quarrel over unscrupulous and mischievous politicians, saying politicians always have a way of reconciling and forging ahead with their differences in a closed chamber.

“His Imperial Majesty said while people would take sides with politicians and develop enmity and grudges for supporters of rival parties, the politicians never take their differences personal and always know how to reconcile behind closed doors.

“He, therefore, advised all Nigerians to learn how to allow politicians settle their differences without interference or unnecessary sensationalisation of issues.

“Oba Akiolu spoke glowingly of the woman and her husband, saying Senator Gbenga Ashafa could only have achieved much because he had a good wife who gave him peace and kept the home front solid.”
